I HAVE A 2004 AZTEK AND HAVE VIBRATION WHEN PRESSING GAS PEDAL. WHAT CAUSES THIS?


you don't say where the noise is. that is important to give a clue where the issue is. when stopping on the brakes 3 things happen. you press the pedal and the abs pump starts pumping fluid. the second is the brake capilers start pushing on the rotors to slow the car. the rotors are attached to the wheels and that stops the car. so if the rotors are warped you will feel a vibration in the steering wheel when stepping on the brakes. if its your foot feeling the pump working that is normal for abs pumping. you should feel it and holding the pedal will keep it working and stop you from skidding if everything is working correctly

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee and when I leave in the morning their is a vibration in the front tires that lasts about 10-20 seconds.It feels like the tires are skipping


If it's a vibration, it might be a brake pad staying in contact with the disk. Normally the pads push away when the car starts moving. (A normal condition called "runout") Try stopping your Jeep tonite by using only rear brakes. (hand brake) Don't step on the brake pedal at all. Then see if it does it in the morning. Don't step on the brake pedal in the morning till the test 20 sec's is over.

If the problem is a thump thump sound it's probably a tire flat spot from setting. Have the tires just been replaced? Could be a softer tirs material.

My 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 V-8 shakes something awful sometimes when I brake at speeds of 50mph+. It then starts to wobble and doesn`t brake good. What is causing this to happen and how do I fix it?...


UNLESS there is a major front end issue the most common cause of the vibration is the rotors being out of round. this is easily correct by having a brake shop resurface the rotors. also the vibration could be coming from the rear as well. the way to determine if it rear or front is the next time you brake somewhere that it usually has the vibration try applying only the parking brake instead of the brake pedal. NOTE....when making this check be sure to hold the parking brake release button to prevent lock up of the brakes. the parking brake only works the rear brakes. this will determine where it is coming from. the back brakes will have either brake drums or either brake rotors. same philosophy but different operating mechanics. either way it can all be corrected by resurfacing the rotors and/or drums

My 1988 jeep cherokee takes way to long to stop.The brakes are fine, i had them checked. The pedal wont go down all the way.It seems like you literally have to stand on the brake pedal,then it will...


Check the power booster in the braking system. You may also have air in your brake lines and this will need to be bled out by a competent mechanic.

Break pedal sometimes vibrates when the breaks are applied. Also some sort of knocking sound coming from the hood when slowing down at low speeds


They have ABS and when you press the pedal hard the pedal vibrates. its the computer doing a pumping action for your. It grabs and releases the breaks so they dont lock up and it allowys you to stear your vehicles while the brakes are firmly pressed.

How brakes work


the brakes slows the movement of the car then the trans and engine slows with that I guess you know you have brakes on all 4 wheels by braking you are slowing down the wheels
